Drew Cunningham and William Hewitt enjoy the upper hand across the Carrickblacker leaderboard thanks to a weekend win on nett 61.

Cunningham and Hewitt combined to claim stroke success in the Twoball Scramble.

The one-shot victory arrived against Andrew Fitzsimmons and Gareth Robinson. Milne Sloan and Steven Grant came home third on nett 62.

A countback result across the final nine holes left Niall Marley and Glen Burns in fourth.

The Saturday Sweep was won by Melvin Moorehead’s tally of 46 points, with Vincent O’Brien the runner-up on 43.

In the Thursday Stableford, David Ross won the competition with 43 points.

Kenny Courtney was next in line on 42, with John Cassidy third and Keith Walker’s 72 securing the gross prize.

The Ulster Cup squad must play host to Carnalea facing a first-leg deficit of 5-2. Don Carville and Stevie Wray wrapped up the away points.

The opening Wednesday Sweep outing was held this week - with players in pursuit of The Ronnie Uprichard Rosebowl.

Cards may be taken out from 4 o’clock, with the prize presentation each Wednesday evening at 9.45.

Hard work by the two organisers, Paul Coulter and George Lutton, has secured sponsorship for each week.

Club fixtures include a nine-hole fun open for all members and non-members today (Friday) irrespective of age and ability.

Everyone is welcome, with the entry fee £1 for members or a £2.50 visitors’ fee.

Tomorrow (Saturday) will mark the Collen Cup’s fourball v par competition.

June Garvin secured success in the ladies’ T and E Kerr Trophy with 35 points.

Karen Shaw and Jean Barr were next in line for the prize first won by May Jones and part of the Portadown calendar across the past four decades.

Players are reminded to post names for the Shillington and Challenge cups ahead of next Tuesday’s draw.
